Holes, holes, holes in the O, Michael Jackson, David Axelrod, FranÃÂÃÂ§ois de Roubaix, Serge Gainsbourg, Nino Ferrer, Russ Garcia, Soundgarden - holes in the Beach Boys, Miles Davis, Bruno Nicolai, Ennio Morricone, G&M Angelis, Piero Piccioni - holes in a long list of songs with the word 'Hole' in their title... even including some by the Beatles. Shame on Chenard !
The soli on tracks 04, 08 and 09 were played by Remco Takken, Ditmer Weertman and Jelis Stam. They play together in an experimental band called Schors. They sent all their albums to Chenard. Many thanks to them.
The guy on the cover actually killed himself just after he had finished his painting on a Tel Aviv wall.

where does one begin?
...if this music is new to you, it is very difficult to find a starting point... Chenard's catalog is vast and even overwhelming... on first listen you might even question how much cut n paste is going on, that's how TIGHT his compositions are! So, i suggest trying track 2 on this release... it's a familiar tune that most people have heard, from there you can detach what is KNOWN from the UNKNOWN-- and actually hear how complicated these pieces are... if you are still curious, check out his Sample Free Zone website, which is all of these releases and more (and it is way more colorful!)... Chenard est un artiste! tres vres!
